Bluebird Cross StitchTable Square

I picked up a collection of charm squares from Moda a while ago and the colors matched my new bluebird design perfectly so I decided to make a charm square table topper for a new decoration. Can you see him up there in the corner? He blends nicely I think.

I trimmed the cross stitch fabric around the design to match a charm square and then sewed rows of the squares together. I didn't put any batting in the table topper. Just put a backing on it with a coordinating color. I had a very small 2x2 charm square from another set I bought and sewed that onto one of the squares for more texture. It is on the third row up from the bottom.

I thought it was neat how the colors of the charm pack and my design went together since I didn't plan it. I like being able to use my stash and then feel good about buying more... I am saving my little bluebird pattern for the Needlework Show I will be participating in on October 20th. It runs from October 20-25 online so you can browse the participating shops at any time and see what is new. Hope you'll stop by and say hi!
